This film puts Reed high in the first rank of directors. It is not a great tragedy of deep-searching characterisation but it is a compelling drama of the chase, geared to an unlagging tempo.

I really enjoyed the dark atmospheric cinematography, and a wonderful, large cast. The movie kind of wanders away from itself in the second half, but I mostly enjoyed the places where it rambled.

Shadow and rain and snow blur in glistening corrosion for a very long Irish night

a rich noir treat - and Mason has the acting chops to make even a rapidly fading, near mute half-corpse compelling to watch.

This may be Reed's most pretentious film, but it also happens to be one of his very best, beautifully capturing the poetry of a city at night.

Carol Reed has made his film with deliberation and care, and has achieved splendid teamwork from every member of the cast. Occasionally too intent on pointing his moral and adorning his tale, he has missed little in its telling.

Well-directed melodrama. Doesn't work on a 'tension' level, but is worth a watch.

What begins as an exercise in realism that includes an exceedingly quiet, civil robbery sequence, become increasingly expressionistic as it goes along.

It was the rat-tat-tat releases of 1947's Odd Man Out (good), 1948's The Fallen Idol (better) and 1949's The Third Man (best) that marked Carol Reed as a world-class filmmaker.

It's amongst British cinema's finest crime dramas.

Reed's take on the material is innovative, letting realism blur into an anaemic, soul-searching delirium. Camera trickery is used to mind-bending effect and Odd Man Out's hallucinatory tone is often astonishing.
